Abrams Charges Intervention
Of US Causes Chinese Hatred

"Our interventionist policy in
China is earning for the United
States the hatred of the Chinese peo-
That's the opinion of Dr. Herbert
K. Abrams, former graduate student
in the University Public Health
School who, this week transferred to
Johns Hopkins University.
UNRRA Aid Limited
Dr. Abrams, attached to the U. S.
Public Health Service in China for a
year, declared, "While we talk of
peace in China, we continue to arm
the Kuomintang and thus continue
the war there."
Although 48 per cent of the Chinese
people live in Communist-controlled
zones, only 2.7 per cent of our
UNRRA aid finds its way to these
people, he contended.
Kuomintang Gets Supplies
"In Shauntung province, where 91
per cent of the province is Commun-
ist," he said, "97 per cent of all sup-
plies went to the 9 per cent Kuomin-
tang faction."
Adding to what he termed a "dis-
torted foreign policy," Dr. Abrams
declared, "I saw Chinese homes de-
stroyed by American bombs from
American planes flown by Kuomin-
tang fliers."
"I saw American LST's, manned by
Kuomintang sailors, fire on innocent
fishing boats in Tsingtao harbor and
the newspapers were full of the
heroism of the Chinese Navy in re-
pulsing an armada of Communist-
manned junk boats."
Hatred Intense
Dr. Abrams indicated that hatred
for the Americans is becoming so in-
tense that Yankee nationals "are at-

Griffith, of Uniontown, Pa., is a
public relations consultant in Wash-
ington, D.C., and executive vice presi-
dent of a large marine electrical en-
gineering corporation.
His election as national comman-
der, succeeding John W. Stelle of
McLeansboro, Ill., had been generally
forecast. Griffith served in World
War I as a non-commissioned infan-
try officer. In World War II he was a
colonel. His jobs in the last war
ranged from assistant administrator
of the Office of War Mobilization and
Reconversion, where he was in charge
of retaining and re-employment, to
military aide to Louis Johnson, the
President's personal representative in
the Middle and Near East.
The Legion went on record by up-
roarious voice vote today in favor of
a single department of national se-
curity in the President's Cabinet and
a unified command of all military
forces. A half hour battle by the Le-
gion's naval bloc against the reso-
lution preceded the vote.

Jury Frees 23,
Holds Two in
Columbia Trial
-(VP-An all-white jury composed
mostly of farmersntoday returned a
verdict of innocent in the cases of

with nearby Columbia's racial disor-
ders, but found two others guilty of

The. jury reached its verdict after

Intricacies of
Mule Breeding
Foil LaGuardia
WASHINGTON, Oct. 4-())-F.
H. LaGuardia, renowned as a big city
mayor but not on such solid ground
as a naturalist, had a ready explan-
ation today of charges that Yugo-
slavia has been using UNRRA mules
for its army.
LaGuardia, the UNRRA director-
general, delivered to a news confer-
ence this theory as to how the
charges arose: ,
The American Army presented
some mules to the Yugoslav army
some months ago. UNRRA sent
other mules there for relief and re-
habilitation work. Time passed, and
the Yugoslavs did a little mule-
swapping among themselves-for
breeding purposes, LaGuardia said.
That satisfied the questioners,
temporarily. But after the confer-
ence was over and LaGuardia had
departed, it dawned on at least one
reporter that mules are hybrids, bred
by crossing a horse with a jackass,
and they do not reproduce.
The charges arose from published
allegations by four unidentified
UNRRA workers just back from Yu-
gosalvia that Marshal Tito has been
using mules and trucks with "'U.S.A."
markings to move troops and sup-
plies up to the Trieste area.

with students who took the Graduate
Record Examinations, at 8 p.m. in

at the meeting Tuesday night. The
tests were part of a nationwide in-

Pacusan Races
Storm to Alaska
On Cairo Flight
SEATTLE, Oct. 6 - () - Shortly
before 7 p.m. (CST)., a Boeing listen-
ing post here reported the Pacusan
Dreamboat was 1,680 miles out of
Honolulu and racing a storm in the
Gulf of Alaska to make its first land-
fall, over Sitka, Alaska, on a project-
ed flight to Egypt.
At 3:30 p.m., it was 706 miles from
Sitka which it expected to reach at
7:45 this evening 9:45 p.m. (CST).
On advice of a B-17 weather recon-
naissance plane, the big Army plane
had climbed from 1,000 to 3,500 feet
altitude and was speeding at 235
miles an hour in an effort to avoid
the storm.
The big 74-ton plane, on a top-of-
'the-world crossing to test the Arctic
as an aviation channel, passed the
halfway mark on the 2,386-mile
overwater hop to the Alaska main-
land and Lieut. Col. F. J. Shannon,
chief radio operator, was in frequent
communication with Joe Schobert, an
amateur radio ham at Zenith,
The Seattle weather bureau fore-
caster said the storm which the plane
was attempting to beat to Alaska,
was west of Kodiak, and that, while
the plane should be aided by a south-
erly tail wind from off the Oregon
coast until it made an Alaskan land-
fall, the race might be "close."
